Well, the latest Epic has gone to its new home. Built this 590C (C for Carbon) as a replacement rod. Its predecessor met its unfortunate demise at the bottom of a lake ;-( Please observe a moment of silence as we remember rods that have met a similar fate.
Ok, so back to the new build.
Blank: Epic 590C (4 piece, 9', 5 weight) unsanded so it has a great retro look to it.
Hardware: Snake Brand Black Nickel, guides, tip top, stripping guide and winding check
Seat: Lemke LC1 up-locking
Seat insert: Black Walnut, superglue finish
Wraps, NCP green with two turn silk trim wraps
Oh ya, added the owner's initials engraved on the butt cap.
Until next time my friends,
